We’re Celebrating Spring in the Fall – Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival

Have you ever heard of people who love Christmas so much that they host “Christmas in July” Parties?  Well…If people can celebrate Christmas in July then we can celebrate Spring in the Fall right? Last night I pieced together some of my favorite photos taken at Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival and set them to Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors”. You might remember hearing this song as part of the pre-show, hosted by Kodak, for the 3D attraction Honey I Shrunk the Audience, which is also at the Epcot Theme Park. So, like the Mad Hatter in a beautiful garden, get a little wacky with me and let’s celebrate Spring in the Fall and enjoy this presentation of Epcot’s Flower & Garden Festival…..

Until Next Time,

P.S. Did you know that there is Sunken Treasure off the coast of Disney’s Vero Beach DVC Resort? Read all about it HERE!
